SignWriting List
February 29, 2000

First, I think we must give Pastor Ron Dettloff in Michigan praise
for his remarkable work with using SignWriting to record his
translations of the Bible passages, posted on the web:

The SignBible Site
King James Bible in American Sign Language,
Written in SignWriting,
http://cyberjer.com/signbibl/index.htm

I remember I did mention the Missions in Council Bluffs to Ron a long
time ago....

I think it would be wonderful, if permission could be granted, to
transcribe the ASL videos into SignWriting. It would serve several
purposes....a way for all of you to practice
SignWriting...transcribing the facial expressions and other important
features of the ASL would be a fascinating experience...plus it would
be fun for your congregation to look at the video, and then look at
the SignWriting...an interesting way to teach the reading of
scripture in ASL. Plus it gives another translated version, so there
would be two different versions of certain passages...one from Ron's
congregation and one from the Council Bluff videos...an excellent way
to stretch the use of SignWriting ;-)
